Spanning-tree VLAN question

I currently have an etherchannel configured. I have one of the interfaces that traffic is gettign sent through, but the other is showing in a independent/suspended state and will not join the bundle.

When I issue a sh spanning-tree vlan 5 on the switch I get the output below.

Interface Gi1/0/24 belongs in port-channel10, why would it be showing the individual interface in this location. How do I remove it?

what is the port channel number that is in question?

Can you post sh etherchannel summary and sh run int gi1/0/24?

All it is saying is that vlan 5 is defined on the port channel and on port Gi1/0/24. You must have port Gi1/0/24  set as an access port with vlan 5 assigned. That is not a problem unless you want port Gi1/0/24  in another vlan?

I assume the port channel uses vlan 5 as well?, the port channel is either trunking several vlans or is not a trunk port and  vlan 5 is defined on the port members of the port channel?

Can you post sh run int Gi1/0/24 and show run int Po10?

Infamus,

Here is the line from the sh ether summary.

 Po10(SU)        LACP      Gi1/0/23(P) Gi1/0/24(I)

The (I) means it is in stand-alone. this is the interface that will not bundle into the port-channel.

Post the other member interface config also. Make sure the configuration on the Port channel and member interfaces match EXACTLY. except for the channel-group command.

Also, what is the configuration of the port connecting to Gi1/0/24, that is pretty important too. Post the config of that interface also.

What kind of device is this? So not sure I understand the problem? There is another port that is defined as a Po10 member but is not joining the bundle?  Post the following output from the command

show etherchannel 10 detail

I would verify the other side, specifically verify the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24 and compare that agains the other side that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23.

Whatever connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23 is having a problem, it may be that it is configured differently than the other side that is working.

I bet the port on the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23 is not in an etherchannel group like the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24.

It's Gi1/0/24 which is having an issue.

Yes, please check the other end's config.

The other end is connecting to A HP backup node. That NIC configuration is pretty straight forward, select High Availability (bonded) and be no your way.

That node does support 802.3AD which is what the high availability is.

Aah yes, got the interface numbers crossed so:

I bet the port on the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24 is not in an etherchannel group like the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23.

I also notice your Gi24 interface and gi23 interface configs don't match. The 23 match the port channnel but 24 doesn't compleltly.

High availability?  So it is active/passive mode?

What would be ideal. Should I add switchport access vlan5 to gi1/0/24 or remove that from port-channel config and gi1/0/23?

Are you saying that the other end of the channel is not going to the same device? Are you trying to do VPC from a Cisco Box to an HP box?

Please describe your setup in detail, nodes involved, vendors, etc ......

Found that one of the bonded interfaces on the NIC was malfunctioning. Had to replace the NIC to resolve the issue.
